Life in the pretzel city (Philadelphia).

I thought about cheesesteaks. But these are just too messy and, well, are really just dead greasy meat and gooey cheese.

A very bad imitation of Uta Barth and the cherry.

St. Louis???!!! The City of Brotherly Love is Philadelphia.

If you had held up a cheese steak, I would have understood.

Ahh so the pretzel has something to do with the city? I'm afraid for me it had no link, and so was just a tad too abstract..

Maybe someone familiar with Philadelphia would understand the pretzel, but not me....THe arm and pretzel are the only things in focus, so, for me it doesn't work.

I like the idea with the pretzel, but the focus is too soft.

I simply don't get this photo - I have returned to it several times in the hope that the penny wil drop, but nope. The centre column of the object being held up loks a little like a DNA helix, but I suspect I am clutching at straws.

I am not really getting the significance of the pretzel in the air. Perhaps it would be better to see someone enjoying it.

I dunno.. It's like something is just not working in this photo for me. Maybe if there was sharpness throughout. Just not sure.
